[1.7.1] UUID error replacing local file with file external

From: Neil Bird <neil_at_jibbyjobby.co.uk>

   I have a local file in a WC. I have svn-deleted the local file and
re-added it as a file external from elsewhere (to the same WC location using
the immediate parent's svn:externals).

   However, on update I now get an error along the lines of:

Updating 'tools':

Fetching external item into 'tools/mksrn.pl':
svn: warning: W170009: Repository UUID
'a16ec33f-10fa-4864-f3e0-c4d0f3191a87' doesn't match expected UUID

At revision 499.
svn: E205011: Failure occurred processing one or more externals definitions

   [expected UUID is the local repo, the other is the remote one]

   Annoyingly I tried to re-create this with a dummy/example pair of repos,
and it all worked swimmingly.

   Any ideas as to how I can fix my WC? I'm not scared of a little (but I
do mean little) SQL ...

NB - real work done via TortoiseSVN on Windows, [working] test attempted on
Linux. Update error text above copied from Linux attempt to do same update
on broken WC.
